  • 10 Tuck Ups
  • 10 second Hollow Hold
  • 1 minute Rest

With a running clock, as fast as possible perform the prescribed work in the order written. Rest one minute after each round.

Score is the total time it takes to complete all 5 rounds including each rest period.

Tips and Strategy

Due to the built-in rest in “Durante Core,” go as fast and as unbroken as possible during each of the 4 movements.

You only reap the rewards of “Durant Core” if you perform the movements with virtuosity and execute these common movements uncommonly well, so prioritize good form over a good time.

Intended Stimulus

“Durante Core” should feel very muscularly fatiguing. Your core should be on fire within the first 2 rounds.

Scaling Options

The movements in “Durante Core” aren’t particularly high skill, but they do require significant core strength to complete. Scale the movements so you can perform them as unbroken as possible, as safely as possible.
